British Queen Elizabeth II will pay tribute to London and Manchester in her Christmas Day broadcast for the way in which they dealt with this year’s terror attacks, BBC reported.
The Queen will also praise the Duke of Edinburgh for his support, in the year of their 70th wedding anniversary.
The Queen recorded this year’s Christmas message to the Commonwealth a few days ago in the 1844 Room at Buckingham Palace.
Its main theme is the importance of “home”, which she describes as a place of “warmth, familiarity and love”, with a “timeless simplicity” and “pull”.
On a table, alongside photographs of Prince George and Princess Charlotte, are two pictures of her with the Duke of Edinburgh, one of which was taken on their wedding day in 1947 and the other from their anniversary in November this year.
